Embodied Carbon Savings
For every metre of Gripple wire rope specified to replace threaded rod, it is estimated that a saving of 1.2 kg of embodied CO2 is made. This equates to a total embodied CO2 saving of up to 95% when switching from threaded rod to Gripple wire rope.
Material Weight Savings
Gripple wire rope kits are ready-to-use straight from the box, removing the need for potentially hazardous hot works and cutting on site. One box of Standard No. 2 kits weighs just 8 kg, doing the same job as 150 kg of threaded rod and channel. Not only is the weight and bulk of carry material reduced, but also the time spent working at height.
Save up to 85% on installation times when you choose to use one of Gripple’s wire rope kits, when compared to traditional methods. Not only is the installation faster, no pre-work, such as cutting or filing is required.
